Bio and Links
Bio Photo Native of North Carolina.
I became interested in family history in May 2010 when my mother's sister passed away. All three sisters had passed within three years! It made me realize that the older generation was leaving and if I wanted to know more about our family, I better start asking questions! I got very interested in family history and discovered that I really enjoy visiting eastern NC cemeteries, taking pictures of headstones, and figuring out who the people were and if/how they were related to me. I focus on Martin County (my dad's family) and Wilson County (my mom's family).

I am a member of the DAR. John Jackson Morgan Sr of Nash County, NC is the first Revolutionary War patriot I have been able to prove my connection to.

This hobby (obsession?) has been a real blessing in many ways. The best part is meeting relatives I never knew I had, and becoming friends with some of the most wonderful people I've ever known.

When contacting me about a memorial or photo I have added, PLEASE INCLUDE THE MEMORIAL NUMBER.

RE: Malissa Vick
Thanks for the Reply. I was following the Eatman line and saw that Melissa was spelled Melica in the 1850 census (1 yr old) and Melitia in the 1860 census (11 yr old). No mention in the 1870 census and thus must have been out of the family. Her spelling must have changed when she married Mr.Vick as seen on the marriage certificate as you cited. At least they went back to the original spelling on her headstone. Thanks again.

Changes for George Washington and Rebecca Forrest Matthews
ID#135551123 and 135551653
I have submitted date changes on birth for both based upon loads of research on them and their families. I also called Maplewood and got actual space and lot #'s for their burials but she couldn't confirm if there are any markers left. I have begun to link their children to them.

George Washington's parents were John Mathis (later changes to Matthews) and Clary Bass Mathis. Based upon the 1850 census which is the only one available for the entire family of George Washington, John was born in Virginia in 1820 and Clary was born in NC in 1814.

Melissa Vick
Been reviewing the Eatman line and ran across MeLissa Eatman Vick. Melissa should be Melicia according to the census and headstone. Must be typo mistake. Thanks
